Mary-Anne O'Connor: Gallipoli Street
With centenary celebrations this year of Gallipoli and WWI battles I have been reading quite a few books about those battles. Gallipoli Street is Mary-Anne O'Connor's debut novel and is a wide ranging saga of war and family, romance and friendship both in WWI and WWII. It not only covers Gallipoli but also spans Australian forces in the desert of Egypt, the bloody trenches of the Somme and eventually the steamy world of the Kokoda Trail.
I enjoyed the book overall but the scope of the book across several battlefronts and more than one war made it difficult to follow all of the story.
